NutraCos, European and among pharmacists highly respected magazine, in one of its researches compared several branded curcumin products in EU and United States market. It also gave special emphasis to the bioavailability of the curcumin as many producers recommend reduced daily dosage of the Curcumin based on higher – amount of presumed bioavailability. This is not a healthy approach as these formulations are merely increasing the biologically insignificant phase II metabolites rather than increasing the active metabolites or Curcumin itself. Bioavailability is an important aspect of nutrient metabolism and its concept should not be used for just marketing purpose.Read More
The concept of pH factor has been known for thousands of years and is based on the theory that human health is directly related and depends on what level of acidity or alkalinity is in the body. If the body is too acidic (there is no balance), there is disorder that manifests in the form of a large number of diseases.
Anti-physiological diets (acidifying food) and physical inactivity, make it so the body creates an acidic environment, poorly stocked with oxygen.Read More
The immune system is a system of many biological structures and processes within an organism that protects against disease. To function properly, an immune system must detect a wide variety of agents, known as pathogens, from viruses to parasitic worms, and distinguish them from the organism’s own healthy tissue. In many species, the immune system can be classified into subsystems, such as the innate immune system versus the adaptive immune system, or humoral immunity versus cell-mediated immunity. In humans, the blood–brain barrier, blood–cerebrospinal fluid barrier, and similar fluid–brain barriers separate the peripheral immune system from the neuroimmune system which protects the brain.Read More

Many doctors and nutritionists believe that the acidic environment in the tissues after long unhealthy foods consumption weakens all body cells and causes many diseases, including cancer. Excessive acidity forces the body to borrow minerals (calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium …) from vital organs and bones, in order to reduce and neutralize the acidity and eliminate it from the body. By tasteing food we know that it can be acidic (like lemon) or alkaline (like soap). If the pH value of some food is less than 7 then we consider it as the acidic substance and if it is higher than 7, then it is alkaline. Water pH is exactly 7 and it is considered neutral. pH is measured on a scale of 0 – 14. Our body is slightly alkaline and this pH is optimum for maintaining the health and proper body functioning. Imbalance can result with many health problems, both physical and psychological.Read More
